A local restaurant is getting a taste of the national spotlight. The Travel Channel was filming at Datz Deli in South Tampa.
The deli will be featured on the show "Paradise" during an episode about meatloaf. One of Datz's specialties is the appetizer "mac and cheese bites," which combine macaroni and cheese and (yes, you guessed it) meatloaf.
"They're fried mac and cheese balls," Co-owner Roger Perry said. "We take two of those, put them inside a bread pan on meatloaf, so it's an individual meatloaf with mac and cheese inside. It's like meatloaf to the next level."
The owners opened the restaurant location on MacDill three years ago after moving here from Ocala.
